The following are good teas to safely induce sleep. They are non-habit forming and effective. The first recipe is to take 1 tablespoon of red clover and 1 tablespoon of dandelion leaves, combine, and steep in 1 cup of boiling water for 5 minutes. Strain and drink with a little honey. Another good formula is to take 1 teaspoon each of vervain, passionflower, chamomile, and valerian, mix them together and steep as above. Yerba buena is also good for insomnia, and when mixed with a little spearmint, makes a palatable tea.

Also beneficial for such formulas are hops, lemon balm, lavender, and kava kava. These, together with valerian, make a particularly effective blend that will help almost anyone get their rest. In most cases, grogginess in the morning is not a problem, as long as there are at least 7 hours available for sleep.

Skullcap is great for insomnia and at the same time feeds up the nervous system so you get stronger while taking it, doesn't just induce sleep.
